How to increase my fps?

  1. Hi,
    I am an avid World of Warcraft player and I can't take my slow framerate. I play on a Gateway laptop with 2 gigs of ram powered by an AMD Turion 64 X2 processor. My video card is an ATI Radeon Xpress 200M Series. I play with my video settings on low but still experience low fps. I play on a wired cable internet connection. Thanks in advance for your help

    Brandox, if that is an onboard video it is not going to play WOW well.

    By onboard, u mean stock? If so, what would be a viable upgrade? My buddy has an ATI 1400X and his runs amazingly fast.

    That video card is a consumer card to use in apps, and not in games.

    Your out of luck, you should know laptops arent for gaming unless you buy a 3k one, which will still suxxors!!!!
